Reviews

"Ishle Yi Park speaks to us from the most tender, furious, and emotionally raw space in her breathtaking novel in verse. Angel & Hannah makes love feel revolutionary and desire feel like embattled truth. Reading it, I was often breathless, believing in the brilliance that is the bruised wonder of youth. Park brings us as close to a heart's fire as we are willing to go and leaves us soaring over the possibility of a new dream."-Tina Chang, award-winning poet and author of Hybrida

"I love the way that verse and form offer a type of restraint, inside of which the imagination of both writer and reader can flourish. Ishle Yi Park does a stunning job of using bursts of language and imagery to reconceptualize and reframe a familiar narrative. I loved sinking into the world of this book. I could feel the seasons changing."-Hanif Abdurraqib, award-winning author of A Fortune for Your Disaster and Go Ahead in the Rain

"
Angel & Hannah
is a gorgeously written, unforgettable, sweet, and wild love story. In the heart of Queens and Brooklyn, we feel the electricity of a first love, race and culture, desire and trouble, as the young lovers come alive, 'stunned in sweetness.' Park writes, 'Why are they in love, you ask? Why does water love sky? Moon chase sun? Light reflect light?' The brilliant, cinematic verse and boundless heart let us breathe in the music of Angel and Hannah's grace and grief. I love and recommend this book with my whole heart."-Lee Herrick, former poet laureate of Fresno, California, and author of Scar and Flower

"
Angel & Hannah
is triumphant. Ishle Yi Park's narrative sequence of sonnets is sensuous, tender, and faceted like cut glass. I feel protective of Angel and Hannah. I want their love to flourish like an empress tree growing in an abandoned lot in Queens. These fresh and absolutely necessary poems of a cross-racial romance need to be trumpeted from the rooftops, overtaking the canonized Romeos and Juliets and Heathcliffs and Catherines. I love this book."-Cathy Park Hong, award-winning author of Minor Feelings
